Mini Book and Mini Layout

Hi there Bloglanders

It's Terrific Tuesday and I'm back to share some more crafting fun.  Today I have a mini book and a mini layout  that I've whipped up in no time.  I find that using "home made" notebooks brings a smile to my face and I love giving them away as pressies as well.  First one up is my mini book with a photo and it's for MME's April fool's challenge.  Hope that there IS a challenge otherwise I'd be the fool. Anyway, I'll still have my notebook and that's enough for me.

I've told you before about this picture that my friend Marelize took on a camping trip. It perfectly describes my marriage. Wynand never knows what to expect.  Good thing or bad??? Don't know but it works for us. Here it is:

We work together and this will be my official office notebook.  Maybe I should rename myself  - UNEXPECTED IMPERFECT ME.

And I made another one for the MME layout challenge.  With Project Life, my layouts are a lot less. I still do layouts because I love them but I find that I'm doing smaller versions.  If I only have 1 picture, I'll size the layout to 6x4 or 6x6 and include it in my PL album. You need much less paper and it's a quicky. Love it.  This is what I did - I'll add the picture once I get time to go to the printers.

For my non South African Bloglanders - the title is "Onthou die Datum" - it is like "Save the Date" in Afrikaans. I plan to add a little journaling tag behind the paper squares as I don't want to spoil the serenity of my layout with my IMPERFECT handwriting.

And the sketch:

I love the flower lace that I've added.  It just gives dimension and a girly twist to the layout. It will be perfect for my picture of  Pieter and his Princess. I suppose at this stage you can guess what the journaling would be about??? That's what I like about being an hybrid scrapper - I've used leftover paper from my scrap stash, lace from a sewing project and the staples are ex the office. No cost at all - just reuse, recycle and repurpose in my PERFECT world.

That's it from me for today. Thanks for visiting my blog and please come back to pay as I've got a lot more crafting fun to share right here.
